“Realistic, eloquent and nurturing are things that are hard to find in a teacher training course. Body flow teachers were all of high quality and full of yoga worthy information as well as caring and nurturing which provided the perfect mix for the course”
“Excellent knowledge base from all the teachers at Body Flow. They all provided a different touch on quality and professional teaching”
“I absolutely enjoyed my experience at Body flow. The curriculum is thorough and will well prepare you for getting out and get teaching at the completion of all course objectives. Body flow’s point of difference is the teaching practice and ongoing support at course completion. I’m glad I chose Body flow to be immersed in the YTT learning. Friendly and fabulous!”
